Citizen Parawater – The Oceanic Tests

There’s a change today from my daily and weekend watch features, since a new video documentary has just been published about Citizen’s testing of their parawater automatics in the 1960s. And I want to leave this post at the top of the home page for a couple of days. You may know that Citizen put their parawater system to the test with a campaign of releasing Jet Automatic watches into the Sea of Japan and the Pacific Ocean, using special buoys to hold them. I was very happy to provide some of my reference material to help in the production of the video, so rather than my usual watch post, I would invite you to take a look at the Italian language video here:

I am very impressed with the quality of the film – it’s a shame my Italian is very limited since I would love to follow the narration. It is a very professional piece of work.
